On A Lighter Note

Over the course of the last week I have rediscovered one of my childhood loves, namely newspaper comics of the 1930's and 1940's. The rediscovery commenced with locating on online trove of The old Terry And the Pirates strips by Milton Caniff here (registration required, but free). The above panels aren't actually from Terry, but from a spin-off armed sevices strip called Male Call. It was rather popular with the troops, though I can't imagine why.

I followed that up with reading a pile of great Phantom strips which, though not graced with the lovely art of Caniff, are charming in their own right.
